Disabling Autoformatting not applied to Word import

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Disable Autoformatting in the personal Editor settings;
      2. Import a word document containing:
         count(*)

        For example, sample.docx.

      3. Expected result: (*) is displayed as text.
        Actual result: the characters are recognized and rendered as an emoticon, and "count" is displayed. The * character is rendered as even though Auto Formatting has been disabled.

      Workaround: manually add the escape character \ to the Word document before importing, e.g.

      \:)
      \(*)
